Of Provosts and Our Past Year: A Couple of New Lists on the ARB Website

By:  Kevin Grace

ARB Annual SummaryAs part of its work in documenting the heritage and ongoing changes at the University of Cincinnati, the Archives & Rare Books Library maintains a number of useful lists on its University Archives page in addition to finding aids and exhibits, http://www.libraries.uc.edu/arb/collections/university-archives.html.  We keep up with the heritage of deans in our various colleges, http://www.libraries.uc.edu/arb/collections/university-archives/deanslist.html, as well as annual reports, the Board of Trustees, UC presidents, and campus history.

With the recent resignation of President Santa Ono, who became the new president of the University of British Columbia, there were a number of changes as Provost Beverly Davenport became UC’s interim president and CCM dean Peter Landgren became Interim Provost.  We’ve added to our lists with one of the University of Cincinnati’s provosts and chief academic officers throughout UC’s history, http://www.libraries.uc.edu/arb/collections/university-archives/provosts.html.

And, in looking back at the 2015-2016 year, we have created (or rather our intern, Sydney Vollmer has created) an infographic that lists some of the accomplishments and activities of the Archives & Rare Books Library over the past year, http://www.libraries.uc.edu/arb/about/annual-summary.html.  Clicking on the graphic will enlarge it for easier viewing.

In generally going to our website, http://www.libraries.uc.edu/arb.html, the provostal list will be found under Collections, and then University Archives.  And our annual summary will be found under About.
